In February 2023, PBI organized four separate meetings with WHRD Toolkit Organizers to deepen interactions, share experiences, and have in-depth discussions on the proposed expansion of the network. We identified Toolkit Organizers’ expertise to be able to mentor incoming WHRDs and their ideas for locations and thematic focus. WHRDs expressed that the network was helpful to them, for example, Editar Ochieng said that “the Toolkit helped me develop my transitional leadership”, while Asha Ali expressed that “your presence here has raised my profile because people can see I don't work alone, but with supporters locally and internationally". Grace Papa said: “I feel safer because of PBI”.
